SOLD 2014 Martin Custom Shop D-18 Sinker Mahogany/Italian Alpine Spruce OHSC MINT


This item is out of stock


Here we have a absolutely stunning sounding D-18 from the custom shop at Martin Guitars. We sold this guitar originally and it was one of our favorites then. It takes a careful eye to differentiate this from a standard D-18 as most of the appointments are tone enhancing as opposed to ornamentation. The back "Boltatron" inlay is a visible difference from a standard D-18. The major upgrades on this guitar are adirondack bracing, sinker mahogany back and sides and Italian alpine spruce. This guitar has a stunning balance between all the strings and even when played very delicately projects and beautiful tone. It comes in its original black hard shell case. 

It has a 1 11/16ths nut width, 25.4 inch scale length, low profile neck and grover gold vintage button tuners. This is a single owner guitar that lived in a smoke free/ humidified environment. The only sign of play is some light marking on the pickguard. Otherwise this is like a brand new instrument.
